Writing/Setting/The Adventures of Tom Sawyer--Map Your Childhood Project

Students write using a strong sense of place. In this Adventures of Tom Sawyer lesson, students discuss the importance of setting to the novel. Students brainstorm five specific locations that contribute to their personal history. Students give reasons each place is important and a physical description of each place. Students then create a map of the places they described.
